Description GavinErry 2013-12-11 09:33:23 UTC
Created attachment 90600 [details]
Zip with the EMF, ODT, and images showing the problem

Versions 4.1 and 4.2 beta 2 do not display embedded EMF files correctly.  This used to work on version 4.0.  Running on Windows.

I have attached an EMF file, and an ODT file that was created using version 4.0.  The file 4.0.jpg shows the file displayed in v4.0.  The file 4.2.jpg shows the exact same file opened in v4.2 beta 2.

The same behaviour also occurred in v4.1.

Creating the file in v4.2 beta 2 also exhibits this display bug.

Thank you for reporting the bug.

I reproduce it in LibreOffice and on Debian x86_64. The document is opened without problems in LibreOffice 3.5.4. According to https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Bugzilla/Fields/Version “We currently use the Version field to store the earliest LibreOffice version on which we can reproduce a bug”. So, I set the field to 4.1.4. Please, change it if you reproduce the bug in earlier version. It is especially important in the case of regression.

It is not only writer bug. LibreOffice draw opens the .emf in the same way.
